Developing innovative rock farming/carbon capture system on 3DExperience Platform

New robots are being utilised in NASKA’s team for their industrial design, mechanical design, and life cycle management needs.

NASKA robotics is leveraging the cloud-based 3D EXPERIENCE platform to complete research and development of its RockFarm robotic system for the mineralization of carbon dioxide to fight the effects of climate change. The robotic system will build rock walls, fill them with rock particles of less than 20 microns in size that absorb carbon dioxide, flush the walls once the rock medium becomes saturated with carbon, and then refill the walls with fresh, carbon-absorbing rock powder.

Challenge:

Develop a robotic rock farming system to build and a maintain rock-wall carbon capture system and complete other farming tasks.

Solution:

Adopt SOLIDWORKS 3D Sculptor (featuring the xShape app), SOLIDWORKS 3D Creator (featuring the xDesign app), and ENOVIA Collaborative Industry Innovator (featuring the Lifecycle app) industrial design, mechanical design, and product life cycle management solutions on the cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE product development platform.

Results:

• Conducted R&D on dual robotic rock farming system in cloud

• Continued robot development despite pandemic lockdowns

• Accelerated robotic rock farming system development 

• Reduced development costs substantially
